The Kinge’s Musicke

Elizabeth Pallett and students from the Birmingham Conservatoire Early Music Department

This concert by musicians from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire celebrates the Henry VIII Song Book c.1520. This beautiful book is a surviving monument to secular music from the early years of King Henry’s reign. Presenting well-known songs such as ‘Pastime with good company’ and ‘Green groweth the holly’ are three singers from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Vocal Department accompanied by the lute. The concert will also feature the recorder and an instrument very particular to the period, the symphony. This superb repertoire is brought to life under the artistic direction of Elizabeth Pallett.
